A reminder of drop-off and collection times: 

Drop-off: 8.35am

Daily Equipment:   

  • Please ensure your child brings their home school diary and reading book in each day. 
  • They are also welcome to bring in a small pencil case with a pencil, ruler, rubber, sharpener, black handwriting pen and purple pen. 
  • Children are also invited to bring their own pencil crayons/pens, however these are their responsibility to look after.   
  • As we are an all weather school, it is advisable for children to bring a coat with them each day as they will be outside at playtimes unless the weather is particularly bad.   


PE days    

4PR: children will need to be in their P.E. kit on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

4BE: children will need to be in their P.E. kit on Tuesdays and Thursdays.




  In Y4 the children will be having swimming lessons.  This term it is 4PR only. It will be on Tuesdays throughout the term, starting on Tuesday 9th January, with the last swim on Tuesday 26th March.

On these days, children are to come dressed in their PE kits with their swimming things in a separate bag (goggles are optional but recommended).  Please ensure that children have long hair tied back ready for the lesson.  


Reading: your child should read daily and record in their home school diary.  We actively encourage parents to come and hear readers in school!

Spelling: at least 5 games on Spelling Shed each week (Spellings will be updated each Monday)


Maths : 

   Log on to TTRockstars for 15mins Garage homework each week. Garage tests them on tables they find trickier to answer. After that, use the 'Jamming' section to practise specific tables without the timer; 'Studio' to increase your speed and Rock Status; and 'Soundcheck' to prepare for the times tables test.


MyMaths:  activities to be completed each week, although maths homework may occasionally be given on paper instead.
